Worker's Harrison Campaign Ball
From the Harrison Museum: The Cumberland campaign ball was rolled on
US 40 to Indianapolis in 1888 for Benjamin Harrison's campaign.
The ball has slogans on the panels. The picture
was taken upon their arrival in front of his House.
family address according to 1917 Cumberland Directory was
Virginia Avenue and in 1925 31 Virginia Avenue. I believe the numbers
moved not the residents. Anyway this is the corner of Virginia and Boone.
The Family members from left to right are Louisa's Aunt Sallie (we believe
Valentine), Louisa Sangston Grove, Louisa's granddaughter Georgia Grove.

people in this picture are identified as Circus People
Does anyone recognize the building? My Great Grandfather
George Grove in his early days was a machinist for the B&O
and made a gear for the circus carousel. He was friends with
them until his death. They paid him enough to open George
Grove's German Village Restarant/Tavern.
|This is possibly Gettysburg. The photographer missed the statue's head. Great Grandfather, George Grove is fourth from left standing. He was born in 1865 and wouldn't have been in the Civil War so I don't know why this picture is significant.|
The person in the water is Ralph Grove.
The picture is probably taken from the viewpoint
of George Grove's German Village the
family lived over the Restaurant/Tavern.
I'm told the Post Office replaced that building.
Grove's German Villiage - Front Street
I've heard they served the best homemade sauerkraut and sausage in Cumberland. The entire staff is posed outside in this picture. One of the cooks is William H. Grove and another is Mrs. Rattinger. Unfortunately, they are to small to see their faces clearly.
This picture ca. 1909 is of my great uncle Ralph Grove (b. 1892) seated on right, the others are unknown. The players on the left appear to be in a Chicago Cubs Uniforms and the one in the sweater has the letters I C showing. In researching I saw the managers often wore sweaters and had the team name across the front of their uniforms. I've sent the picture to the Cubs website with no response. Maybe someone knows.
